Many tenants who are renting an apartment or home are in a pickle when landlords don’t allow tenants to paint the walls in a different color or take off the wallpaper that doesn’t suit their tastes. A great way to get around this is by purchasing flat bed sheets (the unfitted kind) and tacking them in a pleasing design on the wall. This will not harm the underlying wallpaper or paint and can add a touch of personality that won’t displease the landlord.
Before beginning home improvements apply for the appropriate building permits. Any home improvement that involves plumbing, electricity, or structural changes can require a permit. Check your local laws. If you proceed without a permit then you can be fined or it could make the house harder to sell in the future.

The studs are the only sturdy place you have to attach something to a wall.
